Recycling specialists in Illinois are stepping up to upgrade the state’s poorly funded electronics recycling program.
The Illinois Manufacturers Association, for example, has created a sticker concept, which would allow service users to purchase stickers from a local grocery store or government office building to recycle screened electronics like tablets and TVs. The cost of the stickers would range from $5 to $10, and Will County is currently working on increasing the number of drop-off sites to a minimum of eight.
